Hardware sampling is not supported inside VM's (and the DOM0 instance is still a VM). If the base system must use Xen kernel, you might have better luck running inside a fully (hardware) virtualized guest OS (though I'm not sure if the version of Xen in RH5.3 supports the necessary PMU virtualization or not).
